Give up. I have searched too. Cheaper to start again and find a printer that takes refillable cartridges. Unlike you I did not check before buying the Z845 at half price £24.50 in Tesco, knowing the cartridges within would cost almost the same. Previous printer I could refill the cartridge for 40pence!

I have an z845 and all injet refills are the same...

1. buy an injet refill set from an office supply store, I found mine at Staples. There are more expensive ones you can but online (premium and photo quality inks) but the expense isn't much, just the time in getting them, if you can wait, go for them, unless you don't do photo glossy prints or iron transfer t-shirts, then color matching accuracy might not be as important.
2. open your pack, assemble your syringe, open the inks but leave the seals on, just poke the syringe through when you start to refill.
3. carefully pull the sticker from the cartridge, you don't have to replace it they say, but it's good to keep in on later to stop splashing.
4. use the included drill bit to widen the three holes in the top of the inkjet cart. (no drill bit, use you own, and you only need one that's slightly bigger that the syringe, the one I got was a quarter inch and very stupid)
5. **** up 3-4 cc of ink from a color bottle and stab the syringe all the way to the bottom of the cartridge in the hole of that color, it will resist because it's foam latex, make sure that there is no more resistance when it is fully at the bottom, and squeeze in carefully in case it's not actually empty.

-don't follow directions if they say to "fill it up to overflowing then **** out the excess", lexmarks leak when over half full. 8 is a full cart, 3-4 is probably safe.

-fully clean out the syringe between each color by sucking up water 3-4 times and blowing it out again.

-put the sticker back on seal your inks, clean the syringe and your ready to go.

-clean the metal contacts and then the print heads with the clear or pink solvent, wipe off with a dry cloth and reinsert into the printer.

Easy as pie.

Can you refill lexmark s305 cartridges


Yes, although i would'nt recommend you to do it yourself. there are specialized shops that refill cartridges. I don't think that buying an original refill is a must, so if you want to look for a shop near you that refill's cartridges and ask for the price, i think you'll find it more interesting than buying a new one.

Empty ink


Hi,

According to your problem it seems your cartridge has been damaged or choked so change your cartridge. Because some times when we use refilled cartridge, Ink goes dry and printer's sensor can not sense the ink.

HOW TO REFILL LEXMARK X5495 PRINTER


When you try refilling your ink cartridges, you are taking chances that something may go wrong. I would search the web and purchase re-manufactured ink cartridges, which would be less expensive than the new ones from Lexmark.

Using refill cartridges


That is because they cannot e refilled. The ones you get with your printer ( 28 & 29) are what Lexmark calls "return program cartridges", which means they are for one use only.
I suggest you buy other cartridges that can be refilled. Those are either 28A or 34 (black cartridge) and 29A or 35 (color cartridge).
Here is a link to Lexmark's site, where you can see the list of cartridges that are compatible with your printer.

The only work around to this is to use two catridges(2 color and 2 black and white). The reason is the printer has a mechanism to check if the same catridge is being used again. SO when you have two cartridges when one is finished refill the other and use and vice-versa. This way you will be able to refill and use for ever without any problems..
